...And then I thought...my kids can do this!
My staff and I raided our recycling bins and brought in empty paper towel and toilet paper rolls and this week, our kids used blue, black, red, yellow and green paint to create their own abstract Olympic ring prints, using the cardboard rolls as stamps. They turned out so great, and they had lots of fun doing this, too.
Now, I'm linking up with Surfin' Through Second to talk about my classroom theme for next school year.
I've gone back and forth on my theme for next year, but I've finally decided on pirates. The deciding factor was a great pirate decor set from North Star, an awesome Michigan-based teacher resource company...their pirates look "real" and not "cute" or childish...perfect for my middle schoolers! I just ordered their bulletin board trimmers and bulletin board set today:
A couple other pirate things I've found are:
Pirate "Happy Birthday" banner for our display of class birthdays. $1 at the Dollar Tree!
Skull and crossbones tablecloth from the party aisle at Target. This is going to go on our reading table!
